A Touch of Heaven Salon Massage & Day Spa stocks a large inventory of well-respected pampering products. Nail technicians employ OPI and Gelish polish, and hairstylists primp tresses with smart Solutions, Redken, Sexy Hair, and KMS products. An assemblage of massage therapists and aestheticians performs indulgent work at the spa too, allying to relax and beautify their clients. They execute 10 varieties of massage, from the gentle, simple Swedish to the choreographed complexity of the four-handed massage—performed by two therapists or one octopus also juggling four tennis balls. They combine treatments of the body's inner tissues with herbal or peppermint-scented wraps to rejuvenate the outer layer.
Outside of the private rooms lies the salon proper, where stylists carefully ply their craft on the hair and nails of their patrons. They imbue locks with new color, wax away unwanted hair, and even provide spray tans to maintain a summery glow throughout winter's tenure.
At Salon E, owner Eleni Kotretsos shapes new 'dos with Wella products and trendy techniques learned in frequent classes at the Wella studio in New York City. At her home salon, Eleni colors, trims, and conditions tresses while clients dip taste buds or frostbitten toes in mugs of coffee. Hardwood walls and ceilings surround guests waiting on a couch or zebra-print chair in the waiting room, which is ringed with shelves of MoroccanOil and milk_shake products. In the styling area, a chandelier augments the natural light streaming through two large windows, and an antique dress mannequin draws admiration from passersby and secretly performs janitorial duties after hours.
The stylists at FaceFrame Studio Hair and Make-Up Design are passionate about the beauty industry, as evidenced by their extra-long menu of salon services. They provide a full slate of hair treatments, including face-framing foil highlights, permanent waves, corrective color, and cuts tailored to curly-haired clients. They partner haircare services with makeup applications, airbrush tanning, and waxing, transforming their clients into masterpieces that rival Mona Lisa on the day she spent swimming in Monet's water lilies.
The staff at RockinStylist Salon promises to provide haircare to clients of all ages, even if keeping that promise requires them to travel. They will drive up to 20 miles to senior care centers and clients’ homes, though they mostly perform basic haircuts, coloring services, extensions, perms, facial waxing, and manicures out of their salon. Each of the stylists has more than 15 years of experience, which means they’re as skilled with scissors as people who cut new friends out of cardboard every day are.
